Two members of ISIS Khurasan, originally hailing from Pakistan, have been arrested during the operations of the security forces in eastern Nangarhar province.

The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan Military in the East in a statement said the two militants were arrested during the operations in Nazian district.

The statement further added that both the militants handed over themselves and their family members, including two women and four children to the security forces during a search and clearance operation.

According to 201st Silab Corps, the militants also handed over two Ak-47 assault rifles to the security forces.

The anti-government armed militant groups including ISIS loyalists have not commented regarding the report so far.

Nangarhar has been among the relatively calm provinces in East of Afghanistan but the security situation in some of its remote districts has deteriorated during the recent years.
